About Us

How we began

Rabbit Hole Studios was born out of a passion, and a frustration. The passion is photography and creativity, the frustration was how to bring the two together, while integrating this into the wider local community. Thus, we sought out a studio that would allow us the time and space to weld our love of photography and creativity together, while allowing this to be accessed by the local community; this is the place where it all begins…

Our studio

The studios are located in Compstall mill. This comprises of 2 main rooms, Studio A and the workshop, and a smaller room, studio B. We have our own toilet and kitchen facilities, as well as two darkrooms; One tailored to alternative and historical processes and the other for silver gelatine print making.

Who we are

Rabbit Hole studios is a partnership, ran and owned by Martina Jones and Lewis David Oldham.
